It's been a long journey and I had mixed my only two batches of seed that year but here she is my first hybrid.

The whole time I thought it was Chaiten x Patricia's pride but since my only other batch of seed that year was Lionheart x ?(unreadable) it must be the latter.

Beautiful, Joe. I really like the contrast with the dark centre to the soft yellow. It's a nice contrast without being to overpowering Smiling .

(At least the flower is) a big improvement over Lion Heart, in my opinion. Thumbs up There's a lot of good things going on in that flower. Heavily spotted tangos seem to make good parents.

It's a beauty! The light green nectaries (?) provide a lot of contrast with the purple-black spotting.

I'm liking the green nectaries as well. They yellow faded a bit yesterday but still nice. Can't wait to see what she looks like next year.

Two days later you can see it has faded but on each petal there is a highlight. On the first picture mid petal it was very golden yellow/orangy the first day and now it's more yellow which is very interesting. The camera doesn't capture it as well as in person but this will be interesting to see next year.

I think one of my seedlings does the same thing. It earned a blue ribbon at our Lily Show this year.
Right flower newly opened, left flower already 1-2 days old.

Yup, just this past weekend. Sorry, no pics this time, though. Barely had time to ready my four entries, and then pick them up at the end.
